In his seminal work, The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive, Patrick Lencioni lists:

  1. Build and Maintain a Cohesive Leadership Team
  2. Create Organizational Clarity
  3. Over-Communicate Clarity
  4. Reinforce Clarity

In his follow-on book The Advantage, Lencioni expands on his belief that in an Internet-connected world where everyone knows everything, the only sustainable competitive advantage is a healthy corporate culture. Additionally he provides guidance on how to create, over-communicate, and reinforce organizational clarity.

Gino Wickman, author of Traction and the creator of the Entrepreneural Operating System ®(EOS®), is an acknowledged disciple of Lencioni’s principles, and goes farther in providing a simple, sustainable model for creating and maintaining clarity, and easily understood and implemented tools for then over-communicating and reinforcing clarity within organizations.

As a student of both Lencioni’s and Wickman’s works, SBS President Steve Johnson has successfully implemented Business process based upon the best practices of both of these savants in a number of companies. Please contact us for more information and testimonial references.
